Here's my reply to your first paragraph:

"If Clinton is nominated and Bernie does what he says he will do and supports Clinton, please alert me on the direction of his moral compass at that point in the eyes of his supporters."

I am not for Hillary, but I would vote for her if she should win the Primaries. So, I would be supporting
her, wouldn't I? The reason for my supporting her is that I think she would be doing less damage to our nation
than any Republican president would, and also I would at least be supporting the Democratic Party.

I suppose Bernie could be supporting Hillary for the same reason -- in part, at least. In the way you view the
situation, does this imply a change in the direction of my moral compass?

In my opinion Hillary has the advantage of better name reognition, yes, but I also do see

that this advantage is only temporary, and that Bernie is catching up, fast, and before long
he will have surpassed Hillary.

The more people see him, they more they like him, and are being convinced by his messages.
They like the way he is telling them in which ways things are wrong now, and how he will
change them

What are the Dems. doing this time to reduce Repub. vote and election fraud? Repubs.

usually more than compensate for their lack in the number of votes with their innumerable
dishonest and oftentimes criminal ways in practicing fraud. Hasn't it been so since the year
2000? I'm sure it will continue in 2016. Repubs. will continue using this advantage as long
as Dems. don't seem to mind it too much and not fight very hard against it.

The Dems. probably have a chance of winning the Election only when the Repubs. make a
miscalculation in how much to cheat by. It's very nice of us good-natured Democrats!

10 Positions that attract the most sociopaths: 1. CEO. 2. Lawyer. 3. salesperson. 4. Journalist

5. Surgeon. 6. Policeman. 7. Media. 8 Clergyman. 9. Chef. 10 . Civil servant.

Also, just Google "The world is ruled by sociopaths," and maybe you'll get the surprise
of your lives.

Just imagine, if Dems. should win the Presidency, Senate and House, with Sanders,

Warren and Grayson holding the top position in each branch respectively. This is
wishful thinking, of course, but if it should happen, I believe most of the national
problems plaguing us now would be solved within 8 years.

The Super-Rich of today could learn a few things from Henry Ford:

About a hundred years ago Henry Ford discovered that by increasing the salaries of
his workers, they, too, became able to buy cars - HIS cars. And Ford was able to make
even more money than when his workers were being paid lower wages. This is common
sense: If you make higher wages, you are also able to spend more.

Present-day corporate executives don't seem to be able to understand this simple logic.
They are continuing to keep the wages of their workers low in order to make more profit.
This pushes more and more middle-class people into the poverty level. The super-rich
gain more -- but this is true only up to a certain point. BEYOND THIS POINT, when the
public, in general, is spending less, the Super-Rich will also be earning relatively less,
because too few people will be able to afford the goods and services owned by the
Super-Rich. I think we are at that point right now!

And, by the way, who is doing the work and making the products owned by the Super-Rich?
The Middle Classes, of course! By killing them off, the Super-Rich are also killing off the
geese that are laying the golden eggs.

The greed for money and power blinds the Super-Rich from seeing the above. They have
brought our nation to its present lamentable state of misery. They deny this to themselves,
naturally, and as long as they deny this, they won't change. It takes a Henry Ford to see
where the way to an even lusher fortune lies -- a way that has proven to be better for
everybody. And present-day corporate execs. are no Henry Fords.

Can this be really true? "Democrats embrace Citizens United in Defense of Clinton." See below.

How America Became an Oligarchy. "The Politicians are Put There to give the Impression that We Have

Freedom of Choice. We don't. We have Owners ......." Ellen Brown

Interesting thoughts.

Our Police Departments have been militarized for some years now - and from coast to coast. It took

many years of planning to have this accomplished. Who might have started all this, and what could
be their purpose behind it?

Well, let's take a look at some recent history: In 2011 Occupy Wall Street began their well-publicized
and peaceful demonstrations in NYC as well as many other cities throughout our country. In spite of
the participants' peaceful and non-resisting behavior, they were hand-cuffed by the hundreds (and
in time, by the thousands) and brought to jail. Most were released in a matter of days. All racial
groups took part in these demonstrations. Eventually they spread into other parts of the world.

Here in the US, the police made it more and more difficult for OWS demonstrations to take place,
until it became well-nigh impossible. Within 2 years OWS just about died out. It had such a promising
beginning!

What was OWS all about to begin with? They wanted to bring out to public attention the selfish, greedy
and crooked ways the corporate business world was raking in money, and at the expense of the everyday
middle-class American people - most of whom weren't even aware of how their take-home pay was
shrinking steadily, instead of rising.

The question here is, On whose side do you think the police will be, should it ever come to the
situation where there was an actual confrontation between business corporations and everyday
American citizens? Just make a guess.

These days it seems to be happening every week that some new case of a black male unarmed indiv-
idual, but nevertheless had been beaten and/or shot to death by police officers. The officers always
gave the story of having been threatened or attacked, and their stories were accepted and the
case was closed. Then it occurred several times that some passerby having a phone with a video
camera happened to record the scene of the beatings and/or killings. This was clear evidence that
what had actually occurred was quite different from the statements made by the police officers
involved. We have all seen on TV some half dozen police officers jumping on some non-resisting
individual, dragging him down, beating him with their night-sticks, and hand-cuffing him. It's
sickening.

What could be a reason behind this? Do they want us citizens (the 99%) to know that they have
overwhelming power, and that they are not hesitant about using it?

Well, with our new Attorney General Lynch, we hope the Fed. Gov't will become more actively
involved in appropriate cases. I hope we won't be disappointed.

Psychopaths are destroying the world. We simply HAVE TO CHANGE. There are no "ifs" and "buts," as

we are dealing with humanity's very survival right now -- in reality!

TIME HAS COME THEREFORE FOR GREAT CHANGE AND THIS HAS TO LITERALLY HAPPEN OVER THE NEXT 20 YEARS according to studies by the Royal Society in the UK and MIT in the USA. The writing is on the wall. Not me saying this but eminent world institutions such as the Royal Society and MIT, debatably the two foremost scientific, engineering and technological institutions in the world today.
